Union Minister of Environment and Forests, Mr. Jairam Ramesh is under criticism for his pseudo green crusader image and his frequent back tracking on decisions related to environment. RTI enquiries reveal that Jairam Ramesh actually clears projects faster than his predecessors. Between August 2009 and July 2010 only 6 projects were denied clearance, whereas 14 were shot down between 2006 and 2008. Of a total of 769 applications, his ministry has nodded at 535.
